Santouka (West LA)

By in 11: West LA

Holiday’s over, time to clear some old entries first. ^^;;
DSC02658.jpgDSC02664.jpgThe awesome Ramen joint at Torrance Santouka opened a branch in West LA (Inside Mitsuwa Market, Centinela x Venice). I finally tried the Special Pork, I still like the salt soup most. The melt-in-your-mouth pork, my goodness~~ *Q* Too bad ramen are not so healthy or else I can eat this everyday.

    Oh you tried! From the look, the pork seems the same as the one in Japan. This branch is self-service?

    So is the other one, they’re just a booth in a cafeteria next to the Japanese market. Are the Sentouka in Japan the ‘serve you over the counter’ type?

  3. seat says:

    Yeah the Santouka(hey not Sentouka ^^;;) in Japan is the usual serve over the counter type~

    To the rude nameless person: I see that you bother to come back and comment on my blog without signing your name *again*, so I’d take time to respond you just this once. If you would have read carefully and not having such narrowed appreciation with such ‘black and white’ values when it comes food, last time I said their noodle isn’t as chewy as I’d like, meaning I prefer noodle with a stronger “koshi”, it’s MY preference. I grew up prefering noodle with stronger texture over softer in general. But I like Santouka’s fine. That’s far from “I don’t like their noodle” accusation you’ve made. Remember, noodle is only part of a bowl of ramen, there’s also the soup and pork in round up the whole picture. What’s with this extreme dichotomy of “either like or dislike” view of yours.
